- In 2011, the Pentagon ruled in civilian court that rape and sexual assault are occupational hazards for women in the military.
- One in three of active-duty women serving in the U.S. military have reported being the victim of sexual assault while serving, which is double the rate for civilians.
- An estimated only 13.5% of rapes and sexual assaults in the military are reported, and only 8% of these are brought to trial.
Why does such a small percentage of these crimes receive justice? Why does such a small percentage get reported? Why do so many sexual assaults occur in the first place? Why is the military so dangerous for women, not because of outside hostiles, but because of their fellow servicemen?
